Whats up dankels. We had the same thing happen to one of our AK-48 plants. The juice was a redish pink color. Not sure what causes the color though.

thats kinda like plant "blood" but water and food, (nutes, sugars).... all in liquid form.... if its purple it could be a diff. are the buds purple? leaves? do the stems look purple from the outside? what are you feeding it? how old is it? in flowering?

need more info ;)

the only thing purple about them is the stem of the leaves, i just fed them a mix of fish emulsion and kelp a little before i topped them and theyre about 1month and 1 week into veg. thanks for the help guys

I get the purplish liquid when I top also, never seen one that didn't "bleed" a little bit.
